Soylent 1.7 coming on December 15th


#1

As referred by the email we just received.

I didn’t think we would have it in December, more like January. I can’t wait to try it though, see if the taste, colour, smell, texture is like 1.6, which I loved. Ingredients and nutritional value as well.

I was just beginning to get used to 2.0, but at the regular price? Nah. :yum:


#2

Yeah, I have been enjoying 2.0 as well. I’ve started to enjoy the Cheerios taste quite a bit, but not going to pay full price for it, and the waste is still a huge problem for me. Hopefully 1.7 is good.


#3

Exactly. Of course, 2.0 bottles are recyclable, but better to not consume than recycle. Plus, it takes a lot of space in the bin! Pouches are much better for that.


#4

1.7 is the same texture as 1.6 but with better taste. And less GI-distress. :wink:


#5

Another crystal ball prediction, or have you actually tried it?


#6

@conor said it. Do you even follow the community, bro? But my “crystal ball” has been right every time, as you know. :wink:


#7

Do you have a link? I don’t see anything like that in his post history here.


#8

Does this mean the “need more now” button will return on Thursday morning?


#9

The only information I’ve seen so far (not that I read every post from every thread) is this one, from Soylent’s Conor on 9 November.


#10

As anyone who has watched these comments long knows, different people react differently to Soylent, so I wouldn’t trust reports on whether 1.7 tastes “good” until you know how it tastes “to you”. I’ve liked every version since 1.2, however, so I look forward to 1.7, with my fingers crossed.


#11

I agree… Although some versions (like 1.6) took me longer to like than others…


#12

My 2.0 for this month should arrive tomorrow or the next day, but I’ll be hitting up this button ASAP! It’s like Christmas in December.


#13

False. We will all tor the party line. 1.7 tastes good. So sayeth Mr. Parker.


#15

I just finished off my 1.6

I want powder Soylent for lunch only, excited now.


#16

So you mix one cup at a time?


#17

Always. The pitcher is wack.

Rougly 2 scoops + other ingredients. I get about 4 meals per bag.


#18

Yeah, I mix individual 400 calorie servings in blender bottles for lunches, too (using a scale for precise measurement). I don’t mix a full pitcher unless I know I’m going to consume it within two days. I don’t want to risk losing any precious Soylent to spoilage.


#19

Have checked compaction with 1.6. Scoop was always so inaccurate before. Do you drink at room temp then?


#20

Ice or cold water at all? The canisters should help this method. Last bit of powder will be trickier than with the gusset pouches though.


#21

I mix with room temperature water and stick 'em in the fridge. I usually prepare them the night before. 1.6 mixes super easy, though 1.5 wasn’t too bad in the blender bottle. (I don’t have experience with earlier iterations.) I found that when I mixed 1.5 in the pitcher there would always be dry spots stuck to the inside walls. I’d have to use a spatula or something to scrape them off and continue shaking. 1.6 mixed nicely in the pitcher when I’ve made full batches.
